    Iam waiting on Shawn finishing my 6.5x284 and have bought an nxs 8-32x56
    so rather than have it sitting in its box with nothing to do i thought i would stick it on my 243 and do a bit of practise shooting you know busting stones & rabbits etc
    so after a few weeks of hiting everything in sight i thought i would see if one of my Roe Bucks would play ball
    i have had my eye on one for a few weeks now and decided to have a look last night and see if he was out
    after sighting for about 10 minutes i caught a glimpse of him working his way through the trees and had a good idea where he would give me a shot so got set up and waited it didnt take long and he gave me plenty of time to take the shot
    397 yards

    Very nice. Thanks for the post. Looks like a nice mature animal, but then I know nothing about Roe Deer!:D

    Good shooting .

    I agree its cheaper to have a custom build done in the US than in the UK.


    I went through this last year with my rifle. If you require any advice/help on the import, drop us a line.
